Abstract

The parasitic flatworm Schistosoma mansoni, causative agent of human intestinal schistosomiasis in South America, relies importantly on the freshwater snail Biomphalaria glabrata as intermediate host to achieve development of cercariae that infect humans. The recommendation from the World Health...

Abstract

Background: Snails species belonging to the genus Bulinus (Planorbidae) serve as intermediate host for flukes belonging to the genus Schistosoma (Digenea, Platyhelminthes). Despite its importance in the transmission of these parasites, the evolutionary history of this genus is still obscure. In the ...

Abstract

We herein review all published molecular studies (life history, taxonomy, and phylogeny) and summarize all GenBank sequences and primer sets for the "fish blood flukes". Further, by analysing new and all available sequence data for the partial D1-D2 domains of 28S from 83 blood fluke taxa, we...

Abstract

Background: The Pomatiopsidae are reported from northern India into southern China and Southeast Asia, with two sub-families, the Pomatiopsinae (which include freshwater, amphibious, terrestrial and marine species) and the freshwater Triculinae. Both include species acting as intermediate host for...

Abstract

Polymorphism of a 810-bp fragment of mitochondrial cox1 gene was studied in 15 cercariae isolates of bird schistosomes (family Schistosomatidae), which were collected in water bodies of Moscow and Moscow oblast and represented three species: Trichobilharzia szidati, T. franki, and T. regenti. A...

AbstractFull Text

In summer 2007 we obtained eight mollusks infected with avian schistosomes from Naroch Lake (Republic of Belarus). For species identification of cercariae and snails we used nuclear and mitochondrial markers: first and second internal transcribed spacers of rDNA (ITS1, ITS2) and cytochrome oxidase...

Abstract

The Planorbidae represent one of the most important families of freshwater snails. They have a wide distribution and are significant both medically and economically as intermediate hosts for trematode worms. Digenetic trematodes of the genus Schistosoma cause schistosomiasis, a disease that infects ...

Abstract

Data on the natural host range of Schistosoma bovis (Planorbarius metidjensis and 10 species of Bulinus) were obtained from 45 published studies conducted throughout its range in Africa, the Middle East and Southern Europe. Data on the experimental host range of S. bovis from different parts of its ...

Abstract

MAbs directed against Schistosoma mansoni tropomyosin isoform, SMTM, were used to test for cross-reactivity with Biomphalaria glabrata antigens. One MAb (1F10) recognized antigens of 39 000, 41 000 and 80 000 MW in a snail head/foot antigen preparation but not a hepatopancreas antigen preparation....
